Gather around children, for I am about to tell you a story about small victory.
It was a beautiful day, and at this particular time my physics class was about to start. I walked in class, minding my own business.
Although I knew I forgot my homework and notebook, I would bet on playing it cool and just use my Calculus notebook as decoy. It worked and I was sitting in class trying to look innocent and concentrated when suddenly my friend siting next to me starts being obnoxious.
He’s totally wrecking my plan.
So of course, my teacher immediately makes a B-line to out table ”You two obviously already fully understand what I am explaining, so lets see that homework.” He said, mockingly.
At this point I knew my cover is blown, I’m busted.
I tried to plead and beg but of course this did not satisfy him.
“I want to see ALL of the assignments from this chapter TOMORROW!”
I am defeated, no more hope, I wave the white flag.
Meanwhile my friend was sitting next to me, seemingly trying not to laugh his ass off, while I was in misery.
“BOTH OF YOU!”
So now we are both totally screwed.
But I know how this is going to go.
Every time this happens, and every time I ask myself why they do not see, they can not win. Ever.
Its just a wasted battle.
But anyway. Here's what will happen:
I will walk in class.
My teacher will be sitting at his desk with a smirk on his face because of course he does not expect me to have finished all the assignments.
I walk up to him and slam my notebook on his desk with all the assignments in it, color coded, in alphabetical order and flawless. Like a BOSS.
And while I walk away in victory, the look of disbelief and embarrassment on his face will be priceless.
And the weeks following this event he will not be able to doubt my epicness.
But of course somewhere along the line he needs to be reminded again and then this process will repeat.
Sweet victory my friend, sweet victory.
